NEED Recomendations for Cargo Liner and Floor Mats

Hi Everyone. I need to get "All Weather" floor mats and a Cargo liner for the trunk of my 2012 Jeep X

I live in South Florida, so snow and slush is not an issue so I dont need or want real heavy duty ones, but I hate getting into the Jeep with wet shoes on the Gray carpet.

Is there a matching set for the cargo liner and mats from a company that makes a good fit?

Is there any that match the gray interior or are they all black?

Any links and or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Re: NEED Recomendations for Cargo Liner and Floor Mats

The 3 main options are going to be the OEM Mopar Jeep mats, Husky or Weathertech. I personally have Husky weatherbeaters for the front and rear seats and the OEM Jeep mat in the cargo area.

I have discovered that the Husky mats provide the best coverage and do not have holes in them that allow water to drip through like the WeatherTechs do. Also, I was not a fan of the big, red logo that WeatherTech puts on their mats. The OEM rear mats also do not provide much coverage, so those were out of the question for front & rear as I wanted those to be a matched set.

The OEM cargo mat is very thick and grippy...it does a great job of keeping things in place. I have had a cooler on the back of our WK2 for a few days now and it has not slid an inch while resting on the rubber cargo mat. The cargo mats from Husky and Weathertech have larger lips on them to contain spills and water, but they are not nearly as thick and the material is more of a harder rubber/plastic, so not nearly as grippy.

Also, all offerings from Husky and WeatherTech come in black, gray and tan. OEM Jeep mats are only offered in black.

Re: NEED Recomendations for Cargo Liner and Floor Mats

I just bought/installed Husky "weatherbeaters" floor liners last week.

I avoided the the Weathertechs, mostly because I thought they didn't offer enough coverage for the dead pedal (left foot rest) area, and I also didn't like the two holes in each of the front liners for use with the 'hooks' in the floor of the vehicle - Here in the Northeast, they would most likely leak water/salt on those sloppy/snowy winter days.

I'm very happy with the the Huskys. Their coverage is great. They cover up just about all the carpeting in the front. Haven't put the rear ones in yet, so can't say much on them.

From pictures, though, it does look like the Weathertechs are a bit nicer, styling-wise.

For a cargo liner, I bought a Weathertech. I went with it since it seemed very comparable to the Mopar liner I used to have in my Liberty which I loved - lightweight and extremely flexible making it quick/easy to work with when taking it out to briefly clean, etc. It's also 'grippy' (like mentioned in above post for OEM liners.) I just wanted a light duty liner to protect the carpet from muddy tackle box, hip waders, dirty hiking equipment, etc and it's perfect for that. I didn't need/want something that will hold a ton of water (and dirt) which would then be a pain to clean, which looked to be the case with the deep 'lugs' (and black-only) of the OEM liner. I thought the Husky liner was going to be too stiff and slippery (i.e., plasticy instead of rubbery) and honestly just didn't like its looks.

Re: NEED Recomendations for Cargo Liner and Floor Mats

Here are the Mopar mats I got from Amazon. Other than the coverage of the rear seat mat being kind of sparse, I'm pleased with them. The hook-holes are in the raised portion of the tread pattern so water getting through should be minimal, and I like the idea of the hooks preventing the mats from sliding around.

Re: NEED Recomendations for Cargo Liner and Floor Mats

I was going to buy the weathertechs, but I wound up having an issue with my dealership and as compensation they gave me the Mopar slush mats and cargo liner. The cargo liner is great. I think the floor mats could be a bit better, but for free I certainly won't complain.

Re: NEED Recomendations for Cargo Liner and Floor Mats

I have no issues with my OEM cargo mat. It doesnt have the same lip coverage as weathertechs (i've had their stuff in other cars - great products) - but the OEM one works well for me.

Re: NEED Recomendations for Cargo Liner and Floor Mats

Weathertech cargo liner for me. It's great for spills because it has a lip to keep liquid from seeping off the liner. Works well with my 70 lb. dog in the back. Gives him a little traction as well as keeps his muddy paws off the carpet. The first time I took the dog offroad, he dug his claws into the carpet and left large 24 inch scratches all over the cargo area carpet.

One problem with the weathertech is that the lip nearest the cargo door is a little smashed now after 6 months. This is most likely b/c someone (my wife) smashed it in the cargo door.

Weathertech for me also. It looks the cleanest in my opinion.

I went with the same combo, happy so far.

Re: NEED Recomendations for Cargo Liner and Floor Mats

I used to have the whole set from Husky in the old WK and was very happy with it. For the WK2 I went with Weathertech for the cargo liner and it definitely looks more posh than the Huskys. I haven't decided yet on what to choose for front and rear but I am inclined to go the Husky route.
